PlayStation 4 Cross-Play Function Leaves Beta as Option for All Games

PlayStation 4 Cross-Play Function Leaves Beta as Option for All Games

Sony claims that it has the largest games' library with more than 800 titles available. The first wave will include God of War, Grand Theft Auto V, inFAMOUS Second Son, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

That makes a monthly PS Now subscription just a pound more than Xbox Games Pass, Microsoft offer around 360 games, PlayStation Now has almost 800. The new pricing structure puts PS Now in the same bracket as the likes of Netflix, with a year-long subscription setting you back a reasonable $59.99/£49.99. The price alterations for yearly subscriptions will be reflected in the next billing cycle.

The service's price has also been lowered by half to $9.99 monthly, where it was previously $19.99 per month.

Cross-play might not come any time soon to most major titles, but now it's at least an option.

Sony Interactive Entertainment's CEO, Jim Ryan, explained to Wired in the same article that Sony has to keep pushing PlayStation and its features in order to survive the next generation.

Maxine Waters: Trump 'needs to be imprisoned,' put in solitary
Last week, President Donald Trump was accused of sounding like a mafia boss in his interactions with Ukraine's leader. On Monday, he continued his attacks against the "whistle-blower" calling the individual and the complaint "fake".

Hypothetically this could mean PS4 cross-play in already released games too, though we've asked Sony for comment on this - and it's likely that we'll see more of this from devs releasing new games. The price for three months and a full year remains at $24.99 and $59.99, respectively.

The market pioneer in video games said Tuesday it is also adding restricted runs of top-selling names into the agency, including Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.'s Grand Theft Auto V, and launch the first global advertising and marketing effort to market PlayStation Now.

As noted, the service is getting a couple of new noteworthy games as well. There is also now a new quarterly tier of subscription available, which is available for £23.

Gamers can choose to stream hundreds of PS4, PS3 and PS2 games available on their PS4 or PC devices, or download more than 300 PS4 games on their PS4 system. Sony has quietly ended the beta for the feature that allows gamers on different consoles to play against one another, meaning that developers can now implement it in their games with much greater ease.
